    There’s a good chance that you will love Omno just by looking at the screenshots, but get hands on and you’ll very quickly learn why that love is real. Yes there are a couple of niggles, particularly in the accuracy of the gliding, but apart from that this is a gaming experience that is near damn perfect.

    If there is one negative for me about the game, it’s that it’s too short. My playthrough lasted between three to four hours and I wanted more. But I can also see that sometimes short and sweet is better than long and drawn out. If the game was longer, using the same formula in each chapter, it might have become stagnant. I really hope to see more from Studio Inkyfox in the future. Omno is pure escapism in a short and sweet package. Controls are simple and controls are intuitive. Fans of meditation and exploration games will find Omno charming.

    Omno is a wonderful addition to the platform, puzzle, and adventure genres, even if it doesn’t go so far as to completely reinvent them. If you’ve been feeling a little cooped up over the last few years, you might find that Omno offers some much-needed escapism. It’s easy to get lost in Omno, and what you’ll find is a wonderful adventure into a mysterious world — made even better by the fact that it’s on Xbox Game Pass.

    Omno is not flawless, but it can entertain you with its great music and simple but eventually shocking story. Don't miss it, especially if you already have Game Pass.

    Clearly we could have demanded a little more of everything.

    Inspired and delicate on the visual and musical side, Omno's journey is not completely convincing, also thanks to a somewhat hasty ending and a moral conveyed with slight superficiality. Between too simple and repetitive puzzles and a fluctuating technical component, the work of Studio Inkyfox can still give you a few hours of lightheartedness with a not particularly demanding adventure, ideal to play in the summer. If you are a Game Pass subscriber, our advice is to give it a chance anyway.

    At first, Jonas Manke, with Omno, takes a seductive initiatory journey that we love to discover. Exploring this colorful universe offering pretty panoramas and inhabited by curious animals is a pleasure at all times, especially if our hero has all the possible improvements. But at first, the player must necessarily deal with a more capricious gameplay, with strange inertia, and face a formula that is struggling to renew itself.

It's a game clearly made with love. Laid out in a very intuitive way, never unfair, rarely frustrating, with lots of nice touches, plenty of smile-inducing moments, and an absolutely gorgeous soundtrack. It just keeps getting better right to the unforgettable ending. Even the Achievements are just right. It's a phenomenal short-but-sweet experience, made all the better because it's free via Game Pass. Expand

    Никакая игра ещё не успокаивала меня больше, даже не смотря на то, что эта игра — головоломка. В плане... Она простая и элементарная, да. И многим это может не понравиться, ведь от игры многие ждут то, что она своими головоломками просто будет ломать ваш мозг, но не стоит.

    Тем не менее, у игры хороший сюжет и она короткая, определенно в неё стоит поиграть.

This review score might seem harsh, but it doesn't really do anything to stand out and the gameplay is a little clunky at times, and i hated the ending. However, it's a nice a game overall that i enjoyed playing. Expand
